Dress Code

The purpose of the school uniform policy is to provide uniformity in attire that will eliminate competition among students as well as the distractions which fashion and hairstyle fads provide. The uniform policy helps to ensure that students project an appropriate and positive image of Catholic schools.

The Elementary, Middle and High School approved dress code items below may be purchased, in a variety of price ranges, from vendors of your choice, such as JC Penney catalog, Lands End, and L.L.
